Hi Andrew,

Many thanks for your reply. I will surely add it to my report. Btw, do you know of any better alternative to this pump?

Yahya,

Unfortunately no. From my experience the Baxter 6060 is the "best" on the market at this present time. I have heard rumours that there are to be a couple of new entries on to the market later in the year, but I have no further info on who or what.

I believe McKinley Medical are in the final testing stages of a new syringe driver. Aimed at replacing the MS16. It meets all MHRA safety issues etc.. that might be worth a look at.

Yeah we were shown a prototype syringe driver by McKinley a few weeks back and its very inpressive. It has most of the alarms and functions a syringe pump has, only its ambulatory

The situation regarding Ambulatory Pumps has (hopefully) moved on a bit by this time (or at least consolidated). Is anyone in a position to summarise the current state of play? smile

As an aside, I mentioned to a young tech working on a Graseby MS-16 recently that it started out in life as a Pye Medical product. Does anyone know any more about the history of this "much-loved" (?) little pump, when did it first see the light of day, etc.?

McKinley seem to be the major player, with the replacement for the MS16/26. Small, compact - Is it too much like the original?

The McKinley is an excellent pump and is an ideal replacement for the Graseby MS16/24 in that it is a similar size and can be programmed to infuse over a set period of time ie 24 hours.
In addition, it is readily accepted by the nursing fraternity in that it is not a big change for them, but it has the capability to be used in the same way as more established syringe drivers like those from Alaris.
Having said that, Alaris' contribution to the ambulatory market is far too complicated and makes too many assumptions in programming to be acceptable.

I would also agree that the McKinley T34 is far better than the Graseby. We have just bought 30 to replace the Graseby pumps.
They are on central contract as well so no tender etc. required. They are providing free user training and training for us at a price.

The nurses had a preview when we had one on loan and they seemed happy with it.

It will be interesting to see how well they are received when we deploy them after the training.

With respect to Monkey's original post at the top of this thread, where do we stand now?

Do we have a "top five" yet? smile

PS: there have been many threads on this issue ... but here is one that has become buried amongst the clutter.
